Thankful Thursdays #21

I feel that this has been a wonderful week, and I am thankful for the events that have happened.

I hope you spend some time, thinking and expressing gratitude for the things that has happened this week.

  1. I have had time to have readathons throughout the week. That is where I have been able to finish some of my books.
  2. I spent the majority of Monday cleaning and tidying my room. Cleaning always helps me feel better, and more relaxed.
  3. Yesterday my boyfriend and I watched a romantic movie together. We watched The Longest Ride, again. I was inspired by writing about it in my blog on Tuesday. It’s such a great movie. It’s one of my favourite Nicholas Sparks movie and book.
  4. I found my favourite chocolate bar in my snack box, I thought I had ate it a few weeks ago. I found it at the perfect time since that was our mini snack for the movie.
  5. Got my inspiration to finish what appears to be a neglected story right now. I felt uninspired to write it. It’s called Unimaginable Treasure. It’s about the importance and benefits of decluttering. So I apologize for those that have been patiently waiting for chapter three. In the meantime, you can catch up, or read it for the first time, here https://threeyellowdaisies.ca/category/unimaginable-treasure/ I appreciate any feedback, if you have any. 🙂

Forever Grateful

On Thursday, when I was on my way to baby sit my niece, I received this notification, which I have been secretly waiting for. The notification of reaching 500 followers. It is an amazing feeling knowing that I have inspired so many people.

I felt so much gratitude and love. Thank you so much for those of you who like, comment my posts. Your kind words mean more than you know.

I hope everyone will still continue to bless me and support this wonderful blog. Thank you once again!

Blog Post Number 1,338

I am so happy to announce that I have written 1,337 (although this post makes it 1,338) posts!

I am so happy and proud of myself. I am so grateful for all of my followers, as well. I couldn’t have gotten this far without you. I appreciate all of your likes and comments. I can’t wait to write many more blog posts in the future.

Glad You Came – The Wanted

Tom Parker of the band, The Wanted, has disclosed that he has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour. I am absolutely devastated for him and his family. I love The Wanted. For those who may not know, but they are a British-Irish boy band.

I feel really sad for Tom Parker and his family since he is only 32 years old. His wife is pregnant with their second child.

I remember that my best friend and I used to listen to The Wanted and have a mini dance party listening to them. It was a lot of fun. But to summarize things, life got complicated and we ended up going in different directions without one another. We do on the occasion still keep in touch. Although not as much as we used to, and that’s okay. I still feel very blessed to be friends with this amazing person. We live in different cities, and things are different now, but I hope that our paths can cross again, soon. May this song help everyone realize that life is too short, to be anything but happy. I hope this song encourages us to take chances, like go to talk to that friend you have been meaning to message, quit that job, and try something new. Life is too short to be ordinary, go out there, and be extraordinary!

I will always love this song. I feel for Tom Parker and his family. I’ll keep him my thoughts and hope that he is strong enough to accomplish all that he wishes to. This song will remind me to not take life so seriously, but to enjoy everything and everyone. Never take anything or anyone for granted, because you never know when you will see someone again. All we ever have is this present moment. Another thing that this song teaches me is that everyone can enter your life, and can only stay there for a season. And when they leave, your universe is never the same again. Learn to enjoy the little things in life.

“The sun goes down
The stars come out
And all that counts
Is here and now
My universe will never be the same
I’m glad you came”

-The Wanted, I’m Glad You Came

Hope

I figured this was a great quote for Thanksgiving Monday. I really hope that all of our gratitude that we have had for today and over the weekend, will roll over into the upcoming week. I am big believer of expressing gratitude.

I really like this quote because it provides us with a lot of insight of how you should take things easily, and try your best to reduce your stresses.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Since I live in Canada, it is my Thanksgiving weekend! Not many things happened this weekend. My boyfriend and I stayed in and had our own dinner. We made a roast last weekend, so this weekend we had Thai take out. It was a fun time. We did the same thing last year, so it’s starting to turn into our new thing. This time since we weren’t busy getting ready, we got to watch a lot of football.

Like any other day, we express our gratitude and think about what we are thankful for, but this weekend we are extra thankful. Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday. Mostly because you get to express your gratitude, spend time with family and friends over delicious food. There’s no pressure of having to buy things for other people, like Christmas, or Easter, or any other holiday. The weather is perfect for sweater weather. I love wearing my cozy sweater. 🙂

It was nice to just relax and not have to do much of anything this weekend like we typically would have.

I hope everyone had a joyous weekend.

Soak Up the Sun

I’m not sure what the weather is like where everyone lives, but I hope that you are enjoying the tail end of whichever season you are currently in, waiting for the transition to the next season.

My wish is that you truly embrace all that it has to offer, since it won’t be returning for another eight months or so.

Right now, my country is in the transition to Autumn, which I love, but I do feel a bit sad that summer is ending. I love that Autumn is a reminder that it’s okay to let things go, as the tree branches become bare from the loss of their leaves. I do miss the sun, since it isn’t out as much as it was during the summer. Although, it is perfect for watching scary movies.

I will always look ahead with positive vibes and thoughts that this Autumn will be the best one, yet!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead. It’s the beginning of something great, a clean slate to start all over, to start new projects. Don’t take these moments for granted. And always go after what you want to accomplish!

Day Thirteen

We should appreciate the days that we don’t have any plans. Although, I know during a time like this, it may be difficult to be grateful, but we are able to slow things down and just be in the moment.

It is such a relaxing thought of being present and not have to worry about having plans. It is a bit new to me, because I do like to plan things. This is a new scenery to me.

This is one of the positive changes Covid-19 has brought upon me, and with that, I am grateful.

Tonight, I’m enjoying my evening with my boyfriend, watching a movie. And there us no place I would want to be.

Let’s utilize this time, to be present, to really be mindful. Let’s learn to go with the flow.
